Ian Poulter, one of England’s most exciting golfing talents, has announced that he will compete for this year’s Quinn Direct British Masters title at The De Vere Belfry.
As famous for his golfing skills as his flamboyant dress sense, Poulter will be competing against an impressive line-up including British Masters defending champion Thomas Björn, US Open Champion Michael Campbell and several of his Ryder Cup team-mates for a share of the £1.8 million prize fund from May 11-14, 2006.
Poulter said: “Having been part of the last winning Ryder Cup Team my focus this season is to secure a place for The 36th Ryder Cup. The Quinn Direct British Masters will play an important part in that campaign, so being one of the leading contenders at The De Vere Belfry will be a tough challenge but one that I’m very much looking forward to.”
Andrew ‘Chubby’ Chandler, Managing Director of promoters International Sports Management said: “I’m sure everyone will be watching Ian’s outfits as closely as his game! Last year Ian produced a great performance in the tournament so I’ll be excited to see what he comes back with at The De Vere Belfry.”
